In Mizoram, female voters outnumbered males to the ratio of 1054:1000 in eight of the 11 districts of the state, a state election official said.

Three newly created districts — Saitual, Hnahthial and Khawzawl — have not been included in the final electoral roll as assembly constituencies under these districts are yet to be delimitated, he said.
